Ice & Palms

WINNER: VIMFF 2019 BEST MOUNTAIN SPORTS FILM
Director: Phillipp Becker
Origin: Germany
Year of Production: 2018
Duration: 32 min

Bikepacking across the alps and skiing some iconic mountains along the way – no motor allowed! Jochen Mesle and Max Kroneck are not your everyday freeski athletes, and they have realized their longtime dream. Their biggest and most extraordinary ski tour so far. In just five weeks the two friends have traveled from their homeland of Germany across the Western Alps to the Mediterranean by bicycles, and have skied the most beautiful mountains on the way. They have not only been searching for pristine untouched slopes that challenged them as Big Mountain skiers, they also had to cover the whole distance without a motor – their skis strapped on their bikes or the bikes strapped on the backpacks. The two had traveled the world for many mountainous adventures, but over the last few years, the idea for „ICE & PALMS“ had grew in their minds: a ski adventure that started right on their own doorsteps.
